Holo tribe, Democratic Republic of Congo

A matrilineal people, the Holoholo of Southeastern Congo practice ancestor worship and only appeal to the spirits through witch doctors, not directly. Two secret societies of witch doctors exist: one for women, one for men. This elegant and noble cow mask represents the animal most vital to survival for these and other agrarian people of Africa.
